Item Description...
Overview
An honest story of one man's life in the Roman Catholic priesthood. This is a book that challenges all of those on either side who claim to have a corner on the Truth. Through this candid and challenging look at celibacy, Father James Lex provides a compelling and emotional portrait of the Roman Catholic priesthood at the dawn of the vocation's third millennium. A lifetime struggle with celibacy is a lifetime struggle to stay whole inside a jealous marriage. As with any marriage, Lex's has been a creative interplay of weakness and strength, of finding and asserting power, and of knowing how and when to submit. This book is the story of any of America's more than 46,000 active and more than 20,000 inactive priests. It is a book about learning the rules and unlearning them....about learning to love and to let go...about forgiveness and yearning...about the choices people make everyday. Fifty Years in a Jealous Marriage chronicles a transformation -- the transformation of a young, naive, eager to please, seminarian into a mature and surprisingly sane, truly catholic, Roman Catholic priest.
